Card Verification Number
The card verification number is printed on the card. This number is referred to as the "Card Verification Number," "Card Verification Value," "Card Verification Code" (CVV), "CVV2," "Personal Security Code" or "Security Code." The number is not embossed on the card and not printed on receipts. This makes it harder for anyone other than the cardholder to know what the code is. We require, for your safety and security, that you enter your card verification number.
